The void fraction of a porous medium is the ratio of the void volume to the total volume of the material. The void is the hollow space within the material; it may be filled with a fluid. A cylindrical canister of diameter 2.54 cm and height 20.0 cm is filled with activated carbon having a void fraction of 0.765. Then it is flushed with an ideal gas at 25.0°C and pressure 12.5 atm. How many moles of gas are contained in the cylinder at the end of this process?
